Radio Station

Rhode Island’s leading non-commercial radio station, WRIU is a broadcast service of the University of Rhode Island, managed by a student-run Executive Board and staffed by many dedicated student and community volunteers.

Location: Memorial Union, 3rd floor

The station operates a 3500 Watt FM station broadcasting at 90.3 FM from a transmitter located on the URI campus to all of Rhode Island, as well as parts of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Long Island, NY, and worldwide via our Internet webcast. It also operates an online training station serving both the URI community and the entire world via an Internet webcast.

Studio B, the Internet webcast, is where new DJs get their first taste of broadcasting at WRIU. WRIU provides listeners with programming that is unlikely to find a home on stations that must rely on advertising revenue. Unlike many other college radio stations, it’s some of the most varied and exciting programming on your radio dial!
